OAKLAND, Calif. — A young sea lion was rescued today after it was found roaming Interstate 880 in Oakland, a month after a similar incident in Richmond, authorities said.
The whiskered critter, believed to be a year old, was found waddling on the center divide of northbound I-880 near the Oakland Coliseum at about 5:45 a.m., authorities said. An Oakland police officer corralled the sea lion and put it inside a patrol cruiser and drove to the Oakland Animal Shelter on 29th Avenue.
